  • Ultra 98 Plus chasis

    We are currently running 82-70 with MP chasis. We have used the 82-70 ULTRA chasis for 3 years as and wanted to go to this type thru the house. When we started to order the Ultra chasis, they didn't have in stock, so they sold me the Ultra 98 Plus for less than normal! I thought great deal! There are so many features that my guys and myself can't keep it straight! I realize going from the Old MP chasis to these is like nite and day! I guess what I need is someone else to tell me it's ok! Is it worth the Time and $? I think so.

    ABSOLUTELY!

    I've converted all my 9800 MPs to the Ultra 98 Plus and they're terrific. Look at the bright side of spending all that $$$$. You will save in pinsetter wear and tear as the BE motors only run when needed. Automatic out-of-ranges, GREAT! Automatic blackout for high voltage grounds, GREAT! This summer I'm going to be tinkering with the Accesories options to hook up an alarm, where if the pinsetter does not complete its cycle within a minute, an alarm will sound in the shop. Tip, when converting, make sure your C1 cable ass'y, (the socket side) is in good shape. Hate to see burned pins so soon on the Ultras. Best of luck.

      Hey Kat,

      Alarm idea sounds pretty good. Just wondering if you had any ideas on some type of sensor(maybe motion) to make sure the ball was returned in the alloted time. That would be the ultimated trouble bell.

        Hmmmm....

        Bal return alarm, I like that! I wouldn't know where to even begin for something like that.

          Yea, I think the biggest problem of a ball alarm is telling the machine that it was a ball that triggered it and not just a switch.

          Other than that, I would think that a motion sensor such as an infrared mounted in-between the upper part of the machines near the down sweep would work.

          Unless you wanted the ultimate.... (to check for an underground) it would have to be mounted in the ball return up front with some logic to know what machine the ball came from.

              Coors:

              My old 9800/9802 Chassis are sitting in a closet amongst other scoring equipment. Some have gone down to a sister center who are upgrading from wanna-be MP's. (Omega-Tek'd 6700s) Are you looking for some? You'll need some time to convert the pin configuration in your C1/C2A plugs/cables if you do convert. Are you running scoring?
